talking about the deficit. much of the reason is that when you look at states, iowa and new hampshire in particular, this is an issue that resonates as an almost psychic quality that resonates in this region. i think that that is one thing to keep in mind, one of the ways in which you have these kind of strands that don't always coherent way that works for you. i think that that is one thing to keep in mind. you know, it's really interesting to think about. you have this vaccination for much of the country. the broader swath of the electorate. .. gotten it right in talking about how we actually care about the safety. it matters a lot in a free enterprise society geared we actually need to have this. or it's not actually some kind of saying that we garnish on this ballot, but an incredibly important part of making the whole system work. the problem is that ryan, the reason he excited at this as further reason, the way he gives a very apocalyptic language of the threats to free a price and what have you. that is one reasons why governors have a big advantage over legislators. someone li

if it had not happen we would be talking about economy, deficits, jobs and affordable care act. if mitt romney is going to use this successfully he needs not only to make this critique and point out this is broader frame as seeing the president disengaged not up to the job, giving it his best and failing on behalf of the american people and relate that to the dough messtic economy as well. bill: when the debate number one is rather is week from today. carl, thank you. karl rove in washington on that. here is martha. martha: there are violent protests breaking out about big government spending cuts. look at these scenes. why thousands of people are taking to the streets in spain and what it could mean for your wallet here at home. we'll be right back.

about the economy, talking about the deficit, talking about four years of president obama would be detrimental to the country. it's pretty plain and simple. president obama and republican nominee mitt romney are laying low today because they're getting ready to prepare for the debate, so it's the number 2s on the campaign trail. right behind me here, here's paul ryan stumping here in new hampshire, a crucial battleground state. when he's done here, he goes to ohio later today. another very big important battleground state. and that's the whole idea here, as the president and mitt romney get ready for the debate. paul ryan and vice president joe biden are on the campaign trail. specific new hampshire. the race here is kind of close. the most recent poll shows president obama with a five-point advantage over mitt romney. definitely a very close contest here in new hampshire. this is a state that may not know paul ryan very well, but knows mitt romney very well, who was governor of neighboring massachusetts. he owns a vacation home here in new hampshire. spends a lot of time in thi
's deficit. let's go to clayton. >> big story making headlines this morning. several days after the attack on the u.s. consulate. this is the story that the obama administration was sticking to. listen. >> this was not a preplanned premeditated attack that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction. >> what our assessment is as of the president is in fact what it began spontaneously in benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in cairo. >> but as fox news reports, the administration knew within the first 24 hours that it was a terrorist attack. so why were americans left in the dark and how could potential coverup impact the election? here for fair and balanced debate is fox news contributor angela mcglowan and mclavigne. this seems like a big problem for the president. >> i don't see it that way. look, the president came out the morning after the attacks on september 12th. came o
even to grips witness. >> reporter: in 2009 president obama pledged to cut the budget deficit in half by the end of his first term. obviously with the budget deficit still at 1.2 trillion that hasn't happened. how does he get past that at the debates? >> as he said, central to his entirely election argument is things were much worse than we thought they were. the country was in a much-worse situation and the americans who lived through the panic of 2008 tend to agree with him, they tend to easily recall what it was like when they opened their 401k statements before this election in 2008 and said, gee, this is not working. the president does have that going in his favor. the thing that makes him more vulnerable is this. this is where romney can really get him. the president said if he got the more than trillion dollars in stimulus packages that he wanted that he could get unemployment down under 8%, and that is not what happened. so what romney will argue is, that the president has failed and that the failures have been simply too expensive. and you know the new sewing began in romney
predecessor. the david letterman interview that president obama gave last week on the debt and deficits was a veritable panoply of things that were at least misleading, and often just flat-out untrue. i think the president didn't get called on it. there were many more misleading statements in the 10 minute interview that president obama gave david letterman than anything in paul ryan's speech which as we saw led to the this explosion of fact-checking. bill: don't all politicians kind of take the truth and bend it a little bit, stretch it out for their own advantage? >> yes. that is an understatement. they do it all the time. everybody on all sides does it. and i think, you know, to a certain extent the romney campaign has to be a little careful not caught up in just being fact checkers, but at the same time calling the president out on his excesses. when he is say things about governor romney that aren't true. bill: rove takes it a step further because he writes about serial dishonesty. that is the phrase he uses in his piece. how do you think romney has responded to date? >> i think th
including middle-class tax cuts, responsible deficit reduction, the violence against women act, veteran benefits and protecting medicare. mr. lewis: reserving the right to object. the speaker pro tempore: recognition of members is within the discretion of the chair. the chair is limiting the debate to matters before the house and such request is not in order at this time. parliamentary inquiry. state your inquiry. mr. waxman: during pro forma session, can the chair entertain legislative business, because i have further parliamentary inquiry? if we can take up legislation to create jobs and avoid the fiscal cliff, since we're taking up other items, i would like to know whether we could do business in the house of representatives to address the priorities in this nation. people want jobs. people want the -- the speaker pro tempore: does the gentleman have a specific parliamentary inquiry? mr. waxman: my specific request is whether during a pro forma session can the chair entertain legislative business? the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's asking a question matter scheduling and not re
to the deficit. even conservative economists have tried to make the numbers work like martin feld stein. he has trumped his study but when pressed about the unflattering specifics he says i haven't seen his precise study. >> i missed it. >> stephanie: oops. rush limbaugh. >> do you realize that obama -- is trying to put together a majority coalition made up of the least informed people in this country? >> republicans? >> in some cases may be the dumbest. >> he may figure he has academia all wrapped up but his big electoral push is for the mental midgets in this country. proudly so. >> stephanie: they're already setting up to say you're stupid, you americans that just re-elected him in a landslide. stupid heads. >> stupid idiots! >> maybe we shouldn't have defunded education every chance we got as republicans. the whole country is full of dumb people who will vote for obama. >> can't solve a problem i throw money at it unless it is tax cuts for the rich and whatever. education. the one problem you can't fix by th
is romney talking about the deficits, debt and deficit given that we have the employment crisis and much of the reason is the new look at the states they thought of as a target of violent hampshire this is just an issue that resume sit it is almost a kind of psychic quality that resonates and i think that that is one thing to keep in mind and you have these kind of strands that do not always come here and a way that works for you if you are a candidate so that is wanting to keep in mind. it's interesting to think about when you have this kind of stagnation for the high end but a broad swath of the electorate. what does it mean. one thing it means is this not enrollment in the last two or three years to get medicaid. when bill clinton gave a talk at the democratic national convention to was incredibly shrewd because he didn't talk about medicare they talk about medicare it's a real wedge into the numbers between the two campaigns. a really is medicaid and it's a lot of white working-class folks as well as the underrepresented minority backgrounds as well. so, i think that when you think a
graduates a four-point deficit, and the right hand column you see how much demographic change we have just in the last four years based on current population survey eligible voters. according to be sedated, we've seen an increase of three points in the share of eligible voters were minority's and a decrease of three points in the share of voters who are white noncollege or working class. that's quite a lot of change in a short period of time. let's just think a bit about what these figures mean, the figures from 2008 and the figures for today. even though it looks like the minority vote usher should go up, let's just say it does not. but let's say that obama gets again the 80% of the minority vote he got in the 2008. let's get nearly loses white college graduates by four-point. it means that you actually be competitive in this race, mitt romney would have to get double john mccain's margin of 18 points among the white working class in this election. that's youth turnout doesn't change among minority's despite the shifts in eligible voters. if this does get realize, let's say minority vote

. >> i don't see how we will pay for the deficit without -- stuart: un obama supporter? >> i am not an obama supporter but i still can't believe a situation where we will get out of this without doing something. we are not raising revenue and -- stuart: you raise revenue by lowering tax rates and getting rid of some loopholes and deductions. that is how you raise revenue. >> if we remove loopholes for taxes it is the same as raising taxes. right? stuart: somebody was in my ear. say that again. >> if you reduce the loopholes on people taking deductions you are essentials raising taxes. stuart: when you lower tax rate you create incentive to work harder or take a second job and therefore you boost the economy and bring more money to the central government without raising tax rates for taxes themselves. i got to go. glad you stuck around. tax reform. that was very useful. come back when we have more time. dow industrials are down 101 points. next the women's vote. especially unmarried women leans heavily towards president obama. why is that? have they not been paying attention the
be looking at simpson bowles, deficit reduction and fix it. i mention there's a tax credit for sending a kid to college. that would be something that would disappear as well. pooug research saying one in five households, a record one in five households owed tune debt in 2010. in that year 19% of households held student debt. that's a significant jump from just 15% of households in 2007 before the recession. the average student debt, so for a family that has student debt, the average debt is more than $26,000, triple what it was in 1 1989. your incomes aren't budging. you can't borrow tens of thousands of dollars against your house anymore. a lot of people ask me, how am i supposed to be able to send a kid to college? a piece of advice i got from a financial guru. save a third. you need to be saving a third of the college. a third should be loans. only a third should be loans or you will never get out of it. the other third should be grants, scholarships and the kid has to pay. aim to save for a third or you'll shall hurting your chances and the kids chans. >> let the kids save some of the mo
stimulus in your economy. and if you can't get back to growth, then the deficits will get worse and not better. and this is the cycle of decline that europe is facing. >> mark halperin. >> prime minister, i take your point about the medium and longer-term issue. how important from a practical and psychological point of view is it to europe for america to have an election and then move to get our fiscal house in order? >> i think it's going to be important that europe and america cooperate to get the world economy moving forward. that's the most important thing. you see, i don't understand, since the rescue of the world economy in 2009, there is virtually no cooperation between america, china, india, europe to get the world economy moving forward. you, america, need to export to the rest of the world. you can't stimulate your economy simply by domestic consumption or public spending or public investment. you need to sell to the rest of the world. china needs to grow, and it needs to sell to europe and america. that's the blasz of a global growth agreement. china concerns more. yo
, look, we've had trillion-dollar deficits. every single year, he's added $5 trillion to the national debt. you've had all the bailouts. you've had so many things that mitt romney could run on, and he hasn't been able to do it. willie, that is the ongoing frustration that this man has been given more material than any republican nominee since ronald reagan in 1980, and he can't seem to connect the dots and explain why a conservative economic world view should be used to turn this economy around. it is a daily frustration for conservatives. >> and daniel hopes mr. romney will take up this point at the debate six days from now. steve, let's inside these numbers. you've got some charts explaining president obama's recent surge in the polls. >> yes, because while i agree with a lot of what joe said, there are some substantive reasons why president obama should be doing better at the moment. they don't get as much attention. so let's talk a little about it. first, nobody is happy with the state of the economy at the moment. 2% growth with 8% unemployment. but as we've talked about on this
consequences that could result from the fiscal cliff actually resulting in a 4% deficit reduction. this is something that is very, very serious. >> reporter: she sees her job as more than just euros and dollars lending her considerable cashe to honor democracy activist aung san suu kyi and she sees herself helping generations to come. >> it's given me a difficult responsibility because i know that a lot of women, younger women, but also sometimes much more senior women, will be at me and say we can do it. she can do it, so we can do it. >> reporter: she has four years left in her term, trying to keep the world safe from default, but already she's being talked about as a future first woman president of france. >> a little pressure on her shoulders, mo question. >> reporter: i'll say. >> thank you very much. >>> still to come, a mean prank that's become a heartwarming story. how one town is rallying around a high schooler named to her homecoming court as a joke, but first . >>> just ahead, president obama on education and what he was like as a student. >> and "ask away today," your
